1000 Guineas Betting
Throughout the flat season, there are many prestigious races that attract the attention of punters, and one of the earliest in the horse racing season is the 1000 Guineas. A Group 1 flat race that is open specifically to three-year-old fillies, this race is a key part of the Fillies Triple Crown, which, although rarely attempted, will take place across the entire season.
About the 1000 Guineas Stakes
Held annually in May, the 1000 Guineas is one of the oldest horse races in the UK and is run on the same weekend as the 2000 Guineas in early May. Categorised as the second of the British classics, even though the race is only open to female horses, it allows three-year-olds to have their chance of winning a specific list of racing events alongside ‘The Oaks’ and St Leger.
The first race was run in 1814, five years after the 2000 Guineas, which is the main event, it was formed by the jockey club under the guidance of Charles Bunbury and was named after the original prize fund on offer for the trace. Now, the modern race is contested over the distance of a one mile in its original home of Newmarket on the Rowley Mile course.
